Using Makaton with Singing
Using Makaton with Singing is a fun and easy way to learn to use signs with singing for young children. Signing and singing have been shown to encourage the development of communication and language skills and are beneficial for vocalisation, confidence, social skills, emotional development, well-being and self-esteem.
The 3 hour workshop is divided into four lively practical sessions covering:
- What is Makaton?
- Tips for Signing
- Developing skills through signing and singing
- Using Makaton in my setting
The workshop is designed for those who work with early years children. You do not need to have any prior experience of using Makaton and/ or singing. Alternatively, you may already be using Makaton or have an interest in signing and want the opportunity to use Makaton while singing.
You will receive a Using Makaton with Singing workshop manual which includes the signs and symbols that you have learned. You will also be given a certificate of attendance.
